Because burns are dynamic wounds that can change in apparent depth during the first 72 hours, we asked whether measuring changes in cutaneous blood flow might help predict the ultimate fate of burns that were not obviously shallow or deep. A laser Doppler flowmeter was used to study cutaneous perfusion for at least 72 hours in partial-thickness wounds on patients with burns of less than 15% TBSA and in experimental wounds of similar size on rats. Clinical wounds that healed without grafting… CONTINUE READING
